A day after the traffic police registered a case against the car driver of deputy chief minister Damodara Rajanarsimha for drink driving in a bullet proof vehicle, the driver appeared before the higher officials and tendered apology on Sunday. He is likely to be suspended from work shortly.

The driver, Nagaraju Reddy, a constable, was caught for drink driving by the traffic police at Femina Women’s hospital on road no 12, Banjara Hills, on Saturday night.

After duty at the residence of the deputy chief minister, Nagaraju Reddy and his friends celebrated the weekend at some place in Banjara Hills. When they were going towards the Jubilee Hills checkpost in the government vehicle after the party, traffic police led by inspector P Devender detained the vehicle and found Nagaraju Reddy in a drunken condition. Police tested him with breath analyser and confirmed that he was drunk. The traffic police seized the Scorpio vehicle and issued notice to the Nagaraju Reddy to appear before the court and counselling session. The driver and others hired an autorickshaw and left the place. Nagaraju Reddy appeared before the higher officials and he reportedly said ‘sorry’ for drunk drive. He is likely to suspended within two days.

Meanwhile, the Jubilee Hills traffic police registered at least 12 cases against drunk drivers caught at various places in Jubilee Hills and Banjara Hills Saturday night. The traffic police issued challans to all violators.
